7:34 am
one of the teenagers gave. we thought to call you. you deal with kids who are in trouble. we wanted to know the warning signs and what we are doing wrong. first though, let me get your reaction to what is a senseless killing. >> it is a tragedy. we as a society continue to gather, be upset, mourn, grieve, then support the victim's family. then we move back to our normal roles. i think that is the problem. it becomes an adult problem because these are young people. i am certain when they do an evaluation, they will find there were red flags all along that got them there. one would say in this community? this could happen in any community. it could happen with all kinds of kids. we don't have orientation
7:35 am
towards thinking about our kids, we think about my kids. these are our kids. there were clear indicators, based on what the media was given. >> suspects, 15, 16, and 17. two have been charged with first degree murder, one with accessory to murder after the fact. you think about these ages. the sheriff in this community where they live there has been escalation in major crimes committed by people under 18. in the jail right now, he went on to tell a major outlet, teen accused of murdering 16-year-old girlfriend and man over 18 accused of killing store attendant. what is going on, we want to blame video game and music kids are listening to. what is going on? >> i think they are overexposed to violence in media and video
7:36 am
websites. video games. however, all youth do not become fis fixated. i think they exhibited cruelty, those are major factors. they are overly exposed. we are seeing our kids violent. even more important, i was in a pizza restaurant and i see parents on their iphone. kids are sitting there and they pick up theirs and begin to look at where is the parenting going on? where is the role modeling, our accountability we must share it? we are social animals. we must be responsible for one another. how do young people learn that moral code? where are the expectations reasonable. where is the transmission of it?
7:37 am
is there clinical depression? have these young people been traumatized. i worked at childrens hospital 10 years. seven, eight year olds raped by all kinds of adults. was there trauma. >> excuse my pardon -- pardon my interruptions, a sound byte the mother said i know this is not my son. i son couldn't have done that. is there that disconnection as well? >> absolutely. that is the biggest challenge. you have to spend time to know who they are, know who their friends are. you have to engage in activities. i think too many parents and other adults are disconnected. parents can't raise their children alone anymore. i am not doing parent blame entirely. although, parents have to orchestrate all the institutions like school, work place,
7:38 am
communi community institutions, faith-based institutions. insuring they are safe and well adjusted. we keep ignoring that is a communal responsibility. >> we are out of time, dr. chapman. another big glaring issue, seemingly disregard for another life. can we go that far to say they would shoot someone out of boredom. >> it seems flippant, but speaks to their quality of life. i am not sure if many young people are in touch with what death and dying means. that is transmitted by adults. what is the root? i don't know. there was a disconnect around the implications for their consequences. boredom protects us from
7:39 am
comforting the lack of hopefulness. i am not sure there was aspiration for these young people. i don't understand how a parent could not know their child was in such deep trouble. >> dr. chapman, executive director of national center for children and family. thank you for the work you do. >> thank you. >> we'll continue to follow this story, of course and we'll be right back.

8:20 am
be used. finally there, what you want to do is don't overload it. you want to spread the weight out, pockets and zippers, use them. that distributes the weight throughout the spine. >> you see a lot of problems with this issue? >> the thing about these backpack issues, they take a while to develop. kids are resilient until they have neck pain, shoulder pain, tingling down the arm, child in the office, we look at the x-ray, exam them and problem has while. >> before we let you go, sports season is upon us as well. young kids playing sports, high schoolers, little leaguers, what are the most injuries in regards to sports injuries? >> three million doctor's visits
